    Three stylish vampires arrive in New Orleans just in time for Mardis Gras, and then disappear again. While in the city, the group's leader, Zillah, meets and impregnates an adolescent girl. Fifteen years later, the child of that pairing, a boy who calls himself simply "Nothing" is living with adoptive parents in the suburbs, where he – like so many other teens – feels isolated and out of place. The answer is, his father is a vampire, leaving Nothing hovering precariously between worlds.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who is clinically depressed might enjoy this nightmare of a book.


    What was most disappointing about Poppy Z. Brite’s story?

    There was not one likeable character. Also, I am not a big fan of incest. Silly me.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Chris Patton?

    Well, the only other one I listened to was "Five Fingers of Death," and that was a huge disappointment, too.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disgust. Mostly irritated with myself for wasting my money on a book that is about the most damaged folks EVER.


    Any additional comments?

    The disclaimer that lets me know that there is no way that my negative review will be posted, so I know that this is a waste of time, and that other folks will be sucked into buying this book.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Tim says: "True Blood PG13"
    "If you liked (gag) "Twilight," you'll love this."
    Overall

    I was extremely disappointed by the saccharine dialogue and trite vampire / human romance that this LONG novel became after a decent opening premise. I kept listening and hoping it would get better, but it didn't. It just kept on being an annoying, cloying, trite romance that made me throw up in my mouth a little.
